Join Dariush Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video The Rectangle light, part of Learning V-Ray for Maya: A Professional Reference Guide.
In this video we'll be taking a look at rectangle lights in VRay, one of the most…commonly used lights. Here we have a simple scene with an oil…rig set up and if I go ahead and check my render settings to make sure that I have…Vray selected. I'm gong to go ahead and just render a…frame with no lights in the scene. As you can see it is rendering with a Maya…default light. As soon as you start adding lights in your…scene V Ray will turn off its default light.…
However, if you open the render settings, you can go to the VRay tab, and under the…global options you can manually turn off Default Lights.…Now let’s go ahead and add one of our lights.…Go ahead under Create lights, you’ll see once you've installed VRay that four VRay…lights are available under the Create Lights option.…We'll start with the VRay rectangle light, which will place a light at the origin.…
If we focus on it, we can see it's a fairly small light in face of a very large…oil rig, which is perhaps 60 meters square.…So that's quite large. We'll grab our light and we'll move it.…
